VicSmart planning applications
What is a VicSmart Application?
VicSmart is a streamlined assessment process for straightforward planning permit applications. In order to be eligible for VicSmart, planning applications must meet particular requirements.
The benefit of a VicSmart application is that the process can take only 10 business days when all required information is submitted at once. VicSmart applications are also not advertised.
Does my application qualify for VicSmart?
In order to apply for VicSmart, an application must meet all the VicSmart requirements of the relevant zone, overlay and/or particular provision. VicSmart requirements can be found in clause 59 of the Mitchell Planning Scheme.
Please note that only some types of planning permit applications can qualify for VicSmart. Please refer to the checklists below as a guide of what applications are eligible.
For more information about the VicSmart process, refer to the Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning’s VicSmart Guide.
